Palliative Care is a type of care focused on providing comfort and promoting quality of life. It is aimed to alleviate symptoms as well as providing the support needed to meet spiritual and emotional needs. All Hospice is considered Palliative Care. There are some programs where Palliative Care can be authorized before a patient meets Hospice Service criteria.
